- Good evening.

- Mr. de Wit?

Mrs. de Wit?

My name is Andries Riphagen.

I'm from the Devisenschutz.

This is my colleague, Joop Out.

You don't happen to hide Jews

or Jewish property, do you?

Me? Oh no.

Nice house you've got.

You live here by yourself?


Just us two.

What do you do for a living?

- - - - - I used to be a carpenter.

- Oh, nice.

So was Jesus.

- - You know who killed him, don't you?

- The Romans.


We have nothing against Jews.

We just follow the law.

So if you're hiding anyone,

you'd better say so.

We have nothing to say.

They send them to work in Germany.

What's that to you?

- We hear different stories.

- People parrot each other and exaggerate.

Well, shall we go upstairs together?

We've known her for such a long time.

- Where is your money?

- My husband had our money.

- And where's your husband?

- He is caught already.

Would you mind turning around?

I believe I can help you.

But then you mustn't lie.

I want to congratulate you.

Amsterdam is almost free of Jews.

Has the police anywhere else

done their job as well...

as you here in Amsterdam?

You can be proud.

But of course there are always a few

who slip through the net.

Can you send the last Jews

on transport as well?

From today on a bounty will be paid.

7.50 guilders for every arrested Jew.

A bit late.

They've all gone into hiding.

- Frits.

- Hey, Jan.

Heil Hitler.

You can throw all ID cards away.

They're introducing new ones.

They use a new sort of ink.


Lages has set a bounty.

- Jan, if you want to stop...

- Do you have more people on the force?

Well, then.

The Germans also need a new supply.

I can find out when they'll be ready

for transport in The Hague.

This house has been requisitioned

by the Devisenschutz.

It will be put up for sale,

but for now you're safe here.

And how can I thank you?

Just wait till this is all over.


Men, I've heard Lages will pay you

7.50 per Jew. That's absurd.

I'll raise it by ten guilders

out of my own pocket.

Ten bucks for every tip

you bring to me personally.

And can we keep

the Jews' belongings?

No, Jewish property

gets requisitioned by the Devisenschutz.

- But you already knew that.

- Do you know that as well?

Can you take a photo of us?

Gentlemen, come stand next to me.

A family.

I was going to give them to Lages.

But for 40 guilders extra they're yours.

Do you have a light?

I don't smoke.

Ten guilders is a lot of money.

- We have to help one another.

- Out of your own pocket?

- What do you get out of it?

- Nothing.

Why would you do that?

I try to help them.


Maybe later.

When I know which side you're on.


Come with me.

Any successes these last few days?

- Only false leads.

- Only false leads.

No Jews in hiding,

no cash, nothing at all?

Wery, Elizabeth. 'Betje'.

Got arrested at the railway station.


Jewish mother, half-Jewish father.

- Willing to talk if we spare her family.

- What do I have to do with it?

I'm not happy with your results.

If we want to stay friends,

you'll have to do better.

The false leads

can wait, can't they?

I expect results.

So tell me, you filthy traitor...

why should I not send you and your family

to Mauthausen?

Point them out. On the map.


Jews in hiding. In Amsterdam.

I'm from Rotterdam.

She doesn't know anything.

- Then put her on transport.

- I know someone. With the resistance.





He brags about raids and stuff.

- Go to that man.

- And my ID card?

- I'll hold onto it.

- But if I get arrested?

You won't get arrested.
